ProfileEdit

IdentityEdit

Saber's True Name is Artoria Pendragon (Lily), better known as Arthur Pendragon and King Arthur, a child born with the destiny to save the Isle of Britain, which was heading towards ruin due the fading of mystery. She is an "incarnation of the dragon", a red dragon who would protect Britain, created by the plan of the previous king, Uther, and the magus Merlin. As a result, her heart was replaced with a dragon's one, "Pendragon" (the last name used by Artoria's family)[2]

In this state, she is known as the Knight Princess (騎士姫, Kishi-hime?), who wielded Caliburn as an inexperienced knight that had had just began walking down the path of a king. To learn more about the world, Artoria traveled the land and engaged in many adventures. The people she saved in his time called her the Knight Princess for her brilliance and beauty.[2]

Her party during the country-wide tour was made up of herself, her step-brother, Sir Kay, and the attendant magus Merlin. Their adventures usually started with Artoria meddling in something or Merlin's humor getting out of hand. Kay would usually end up being the one trying to undo the damage the other two had caused.[2]

AppearanceEdit

Saber Lily is often called White Saber (白セイバー, Shiro Seibā?). She is like an adorable lily and her eyes brim with shining hope.[2]


PersonalityEdit

A girl-knight who is still somewhat inexperienced. She is a knight with a romantic, idyllic nature who practices daily in order to become the ideal king. Because of her inexperience, her girlishness has not been wiped away yet and her heart is filled with hopes and dreams. Although the training to become a king is harsh, she is happy as long as she can take care of the horses.[2]

RelationshipsEdit

Mysterious Heroine X
Merlin
When Saber Lily is in danger, the Masked Britain Bishōnen gallantly appears. His identity is shrouded in mystery.[1]

RoleEdit

Fate/unlimited codesEdit

Saber Lily appears as an unlockable costume for Saber. Unlike Saber Alter, who is a unique alternate character, Saber Lily is simply a costume that changes nothing else about the character. Unique from other alternate costumes, her name changes along with the costume, and although her artwork shows her wielding Caliburn, she still wields Excalibur in-game.

Fate/Grand OrderEdit

SABER WARS – Lily’s Cosmic Training – The Caliburn AwakensEdit

InterludeEdit

In her interlude Sword of a Young Flower, she happily wanders Marseille with Ritsuka and Mash, though she is depressed that England and France are at war during this time. Her innocence reminds everyone of the contrast between her and Saber Alter, which concerns Artoria as a future self she wants to avoid with Ritsuka's help. After being asked by Romani, she reveals that her feminine clothing is the result of Merlin's suggestion to wear them to hide her identity. The town gate is then suddenly attacked, which Artoria and Mash go to defend. After defeating the attackers, She is depressed that the townspeople have closed the gates behind them, but Romani tells her not to blame people, which Artoria agrees with. She is happy though that she can help Ritsuka, and believes that she'll be able to continue to fight for ideals if she stays with them.

Other appearancesEdit

  • Saber 4~8.
  • Illya Install Saber class card.

In Chibichuki!, Saber Lily is part of the Saber 4~8 (セイバー4~8, Seibā 4~8?).

When Illya installs Saber Class Card in Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA☆ILLYA, she wore Saber Lily armor instead of the original.

AbilitiesEdit

Saber Lily wields Caliburn. Her personal skills are Mana Burst.

Regardless of the kind of High Thaumaturgy, her Magic Resistance skill negates magecraft of B Rank or below. Even though she has a "heart of a dragon" inside of her, it has not yet fully awakened. Because of this, she is one rank below the grown Artoria.[1]

Her Riding skill can flawlessly ride mounts that have received proper training and adjustment.[1]

Her Instinct is the ability to always "grasp" the most suitable strategy during battle. Her sharpened sixth sense is already close to seeing premonitions of the future. Hindrances that interfere with her senses of sight and hearing are reduced by half. This good intuition occasionally has drawbacks. Since her intuition lets her understand the troubles of strangers, she unconsciously ends up giving a helping hand to each new person she meets.[1][2]

Journey of Flowers (花の旅路, Hana no Tabiji?) is a blessing (Gift) towards the girl-knight who began walking on the path to be a king. Her traveling is filled with hope, making the hearts of those who fight along her more proactive.[1]

Possessing the heart of a dragon, which belongs to the top-ranks of the Phantasmal Species, the amount of Magical energy she can generate inside her body overwhelms other Heroic Spirits.[2]

DevelopmentEdit

Creation and ConceptionEdit

First appearing in Fate/unlimited codes as an alternate costume, Saber Lily was designed by Takashi Takeuchi as another form of the King of Knights with an "emphasis on her girlishness." In contrast to the blackened Saber Alter, she is called the pure and sweet "Princess of Knights" who is shown to carry Caliburn rather than Excalibur. Her design was inspired by the dress Caster placed on Saber after she was captured during Unlimited Blade Works. The design was filled with the feminine qualities that Saber lacks, and "Lily" in her name refers to her skirt being designed to resemble the petals of a lily flower. She originally had no background information within unlimited codes or other side materials, but Nasu Kinoko and Gen Urobuchi joked about her being a version of Saber fully tamed by Caster during a discussion.[3]
